the line on tax rate increases and grover norquist has come out hard again saying that republicans have to stand by the pledge. >> if the republicans lose in such a way that they got their fingerprints on the murder weapon then you have a problem. bush couldn't run again in 1992 successfully because he had his fingerprints on a very bad deal. bad on spending and bad on savings. >> is he right about those politics? >> you know, i think not actually, but i think -- you have to remember our fingerprints aren't on this if we cooperate with the president and make 80% of the bush tax cuts permanent for the 98% of the american people. that's a victory not a loss. we're still free to fight the fight over higher rates. offering revenue, which the speaker has put on the table. i think we have the opportunity to take the initiative and actually, again, move the the discussion on discussion on entitlements. >> and dan, something else that republicans are worried about, not 92 but 1994 when the government shut down, newt gingrich was blamed. >> trust me, you talk to republicans, no matter how this s

revenue is on the table. we have republican senators saying they will stand up to the grover norquist tax pledge. they're willing to break it which is pretty big news. we also have the influential member of congress, republican tom cole saying we have got to agree to extend the tax cut just for those people making $250,000 and below and letting the more wealthy be taxed. definitely flexibility but what you see from democrats is an unwillingness to do serious entitlement reform that would lead to reductions in spending. they want to kick the can down the road and do more of the next year with the vague promises. dennis: the think republicans will be willing to agree upfront to more tax revenue or higher tax rates as we go without a firm cap on entitlement reform? >> that is the big question. what is a firm commitment? what they're going to look for is some spending cuts this year with an avenue towards entitlement reform next year is the best they are going to get. absolutely what the deal is going to be is the wealthier people, making $250,000 a year, will see their taxes go up. that is a
future tied up in this. not so long ago we had grover norquist on. said the president is going to have to back off, we have to raise taxes and low and behold the "wall street journal" ran a story saying just that, it will be a bargain. are you going to get it tomorrow? they will fuss with the income rate. that will be a part of the conversation as well. the longer it goes on, the more threat letters to the economy and the stock market because people don't know what to expense. one comment about the dividend story you are doing, don't forget these companies are run by big-time executives who get paid this way and are driving the chain. tracy: you can't blame them, somebody has to do it. ashley: don't miss gerri willis and m "the willis report" here n fox business. thank you. tracy: the white house using twitter as part of an arsenal in the fiscal cliff battle, but may not have been the best idea for them. ashley: we will be right back.

grover norquist refuses to declare whether decoupling would violate his group's pledge, that, too, gives a whole lot of cover to the speaker. and when more and more rank-and-file republicans come out publicly every day in favor of passing the senate bill, that, too, gives cover to the speaker. you really have to absolute cram tom cole. he was the first one on the other side to dare speak the truth about what should be done on taxes and he's been on tv almost every day making the case to his party in public. the day after congressman cole went public he was dismissed as having a minority opinion. well, that's not true anymore. his comments sparked a trend. in addition to those republicans who have spoken out publicly there are probably dozens of other tom coles in the house who just don't feel free to speak their mind but agree with him privately. just this morning in an appearance on cable television, the junior senator from oklahoma, an unquestioned conservative, came out in favor of higher tax rates on the wealthy. he said -- quote -- "personally, i know we have to raise revenue. i rea

because of the grover norquist tax pledge, this has been a long time coming. republicans are ready to bolt on saxby in 2008 and just throw their hands up in the runoff. >> but he's a very conservative senator. >> he's one of the guys between the democrats getting 60. >> he's a very conservative senator. >> saxby chambliss is conservative on social issues but a pro-life status. he's very pro-life but for big spending in washington the whole time he's been there. >> so, paul, this anti-tax business, it sounds like the times are beginning to turn on it. >> well, i think so. first off, erick, if you want to run, brother i was telling you this off the air. i worked for zell miller. i like your state. >> christie likes you, paul. >> on this tax question, look, voters are really set. it's about seven out of ten depending on how you ask it who want to see tax rates go up for upper income americans. nobody wants to soak the rich. but the 39.5% or so top rate that president obama wants to return to which we paid under clinton is very, very popular. republicans should ought not fall on that sword. th
years from now. thank you very much. i think grover norquist will be laughing at all of you. >> all of who? >> you don't solve income inequality by taxing rich people. that doesn't happen. >> i'm just advancing -- >> you don't think the republicans will bear a big part of the blame on this? the president has set it up like that. we want to both keep taxes low on 98%, what can't we -- >> they can spin it any way they want and they will, becky. but i think the key thing here is that neither side is really moving the ball forward. they're not really talking about core issues when it comes to any kind of fiscal sanity. but i will say this, part of the reason the republicans are so reluctant to do business with obama is they got rolled in the first two years. and the other thing is when they hear the rhetoric coming from the left, listen to people like paul krugman who says we've got to print money and borrow money. they're horrified. you take that message down south to a lot of constituencies and they don't want to deal with. so, you know, i think it's a strange time. we do have great p
